Installation of the SobiPro Repository

Last updated: 3. October 2017

Refers to version: 1.4+

SobiPro features a repository to automatically download and install applications that you have access to.

Some applications are for free, others need a SobiPro subscription (club membership) of a certain level.
The repository is pre-installed in SobiPro, to get access to all free applications and language packages. In order to get access to the club applications, you need to re-install the repository providing your order id and token, which you will get in your club account. The order id and token let the repository know of your subscription level and expiration time. If you have renewed your membership, you got new access data, thus you also need to re-install the repository and enter your new data. This article shows you how to re-install the SobiPro repository.

For the safety of the provided data, the repository is secured by a SSL certificate. Every 3 years such a certificate expires and we have to renew it. With the renewal of a SSL certificate the serial number changes and therefore you also have to re-install the repository.

In order to use the SobiPro repository successfully, your server needs to fulfil the following requirements.

1) Some providers seem to provide this functionality within the PHP configuration, but at the same time outgoing connections are blocked on the firewall or do not allow CURL for SSL URLs.
Please ensure that this functionality is enabled and also that it is indeed possible to use it.

Please note: If you want to have access to club applications, entering the subscription ID and token is NOT optional.
They are optional ONLY if you want to install only free applications via repository!

Now you can proceed to Application, Template and Language Installation via Repository.
